Artificial Intelligence (AI) recruiting and applications are growing at an exponential rate! One such application is robotics. I shared this AI application during a recent WGN Radio appearance with host Steve Grzanich. However, there are many more ways AI can be recruited by business to improve productivity. Artificial intelligence has long been viewed negatively as a job elimination vehicle.
Many companies have turned to artificial intelligence to lead hiring processes and cherry-pick job applicants… Welcome to the'Wild West of Hiring.' Pixabay When Emily applied for her dream job, she expected to ace her interview. She knew the company inside and out and had prepared to explain why she would be perfect for the role. When she received an invitation to a video platform that would record her responses to a series of questions, she was slightly thrown--she was applying for a people-facing role and had hoped to be able to build rapport with the hiring manager. Still, she hoped that she could still show her personality, even in pre-recorded clips. What Emily didn't realize until after the interview was that the third-party company that hosted the video software used facial analysis technology to screen candidates.
Whether employers are currently operating as normal, teleworking, or planning for the future, the Covid-19 experience may lead them to turn to the proliferation of workplace artificial intelligence (AI) tools to help streamline recruiting and hiring so they can continue maintaining social distancing best practices. Employers should be aware, however, that using such AI tools brings with it various regulatory challenges regardless of its utility in these trying times. AI has been exerting an ever-growing influence on companies' employment decisionmaking for some time. AI tools that have long been used to market services and products to customers (e.g., algorithms for personalized pop-up ads) are making increasing inroads into the employment arena, including those that mine data from an applicant's social media and internet presence to determine personal attributes and those that evaluate an applicant's responses during a video interview in making employment decisions. Employers considering using AI recruitment and selection tools during the Covid-19 crisis, which some experts expect to last for months after the curve has "flattened," should be mindful of the potential for misuse and of discriminatory impact raised by these technologies.
Facial Recognition is a biometric application which catches a picture and uses it to distinguish people by applying facial analytics and comparing it with the current database. Facial recognition systems are regularly utilized for security purposes, particularly in the surveillance field however as of late the utilization of facial recognition in different applications has advanced. The facial recognition market is driven by expanding criminal exercises, internationally. Aside from it, the expanding safety efforts at ATMs and the growing establishment of facial recognition systems at air terminals, and shopping centers drive the facial acknowledgment market. Silicon Valley's way to deal with facial recognition, utilizing amazing PCs and huge datasets of appearances to prepare profoundly precise programming, is just the start to enter into the security market.
Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers or the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. Despite its nascent nature, the ubiquity of AI applications is already transforming everyday life for the better. Whether discussing smart assistants like Apple's Siri or Amazon's Alexa, applications for better customer service or the ability to utilize big data insights to streamline and enhance operations, AI is quickly becoming an essential tool of modern life and business. In fact, according to statistics from Adobe, only 15 percent of enterprises are using AI as of today, but 31 percent are expected to add it over the coming 12 months, and the share of jobs requiring AI has increased by 450 percent since 2013. Leveraging clues from their environment, artificially intelligent systems are programmed by humans to solve problems, assess risks, make predictions and take actions based on input data.
